Product Features

Introducing the new Epic 8, the fastest XC race bike on the planet. Specialized has redefined the formula of fastest with double the capability, extra efficiency, and less mass.

Visit a Bike Society store to see these new bikes in the flesh and talk to our friendly team about all the features and benefits of a Specialized Epic 8 for your riding.

Capability
The most capable 120mm bike on the planet

The Epic 8 punches way above its class, because as tracks get more technical, capability makes the difference between winning and crashing. On top of that, the more composed the bike in technical terrain, the more the rider can recover on the descents so they’re ready to attack on the next climb.

Geometric Capability
Progressive Geometry for modern XC

The Epic 8’s progressive geometry delivers technical terrain capability alongside fast and efficient climbing and acceleration performance. The generous cockpit centres the rider on the bike for optimal traction and corner control. The low bottom bracket and slack head-tube keep things composed in the rough.

Efficiency
20% less pedal bob, the most efficient peddling suspension bike Specialized has ever tested

The new Epic 8 is the most efficient pedaling suspension bike we’ve ever tested, while maintaining traction and absorbing bumps. By optimising the kinematics of the suspension, Specialized Ride Dynamics was able to create a bike that reduces inefficient pedal-induced bobbing by 20%, maintains active suspension for effective bump force management, and ensures the rider remains in the most efficient pedalling position.

Lightweight
76 grams lighter than the previous S-Works Epic

Of course the new Epic 8’s are lighter than their predecessors. Specialized shaved 76 grams off of the new S-Works while boosting efficiency and capability. On top of that, features added include SWAT and steering stops. How’d they do it? Simple, obsessive attention to detail, engineering, and composites wizardry.

Focus on Fast

The Specialized Ride Dynamics tuned RockShox Flight Attendant system frees your mind to focus on fast by simplifying decision making in the heat of the moment, instantaneously changing to the optimal Dynamic Trio setting. Flight Attendant leverages SRAM AXS Wireless technology to collect real-time data from you and the terrain to determine optimal compression settings to deliver an unmatched experience for the rider.
